The Conversation That Made Me Quit My Job
“My goal is to be financially free, so that I can do whatever I want”
Ever heard this before?… Ever said this before? Yeah, me too… A lot.
It wasn’t until, I had this conversation that I realized what I was doing to brainwash myself. It was a way to justify giving into my fears and not doing what I really wanted to do. I hope this quick story has as big of an impact on you as it had on me.
This may have been one of the most important conversations I have ever had and I want to let you in on a little secret. You may have guessed it already, but the friend in that story was actually me… Did you guess that the mentor in that story was also me?
That’s right. I had this conversation… with myself… in my head.
The first time it happened was about 2 years ago and it didn’t go well. Young-Naive-Zander wanted nothing to do with Mentor-Zander’s words of wisdom. I basically told that little voice in my head to go fuck itself and ignored what I knew to be truth.
6 Months later this idea popped up again and I shoved it back down into the depths of my subconscious where it belonged.
I never wanted to admit, I was afraid of what I knew I had to do. I never wanted to admit the truth about the path I had chosen to go down.
It took me 2 years of mentally sparing with my own thoughts before I finally admitted it. I needed to make a change.
Its amazing what you can do once you break the chains that are your own limiting beliefs.
